Neuhaus intertwines the change of society and the change of family roles together in this piece of text. Yes America was undergoing social change at the time, but as the result, women became highly expected to take charge in the household jobs including cooking.

Fun With Cooking even contains black and white pictures of a ten year old girl for help with step by step instructions for certain recipes. She is in the kitchen by herself making all of these easy recipes for beginners. This reflects the argument that cooking is seen as the women’s job, and is taught to women from a young age. It is not a bad thing that mom’s tend to be in charge of cooking for the family. I know my mom is the main chef of my house, and that is how it has been “In Early and Modern America” since 1746! Neuhaus argues throughout “A Most Enchanting Occupation”, that the occupation belongs to the housewife. There may be little changes in how dominant that occupation may be along with the change in time, but it is clearly obvious that cooking is the women’s job in many cook books including “Fun With Cooking” by Mae Blacker Freeman.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
